Honda City 2017 Facelift

  • Used Honda City GM6 (2014-2020) Buyer’s Guide

    Used Honda City GM6 (2014-2020) Buyer’s Guide

    If you’re in the market for a reliable used sedan, the Honda City GM6 may just be the perfect fit. Since its launch, it has been hailed for its space, performance, and value. But what should you look for when buying a used Honda City GM6? Here’s a guide.

    Overview

    The Honda City GM6 stands out in the B-segment due to its impressive rear passenger space, best in its class. With a wheelbase length of 2,600 mm, it provides ample room for both drivers and passengers. The 536-litre boot was also segment-leading at launch time, offering considerable storage space for luggage or shopping.

    Model Years

    The Honda City GM6 was first launched in 2014, and was updated with a facelift in 2017. It remained on sale up to 2020, when it was replaced by the 5th gen car in October 2020.

    Given that the last unit of the City GM6 would have been sold in September 2020, its 5 year warranty would only expire sometime in September 2025. Buying it now would mean a car that still has a considerable amount of warranty left.

    Engine and Performance

    Used Honda City GM6 (2014-2020) Buyer’s Guide

    Under the hood, the 2014 City houses a 1.5 litre SOHC i-VTEC engine, which is known for its durability and power. The engine produces 120 PS at 6,600 rpm and 145 Nm at 4,600 rpm.

    When inspecting a used City, check for any unusual noises or issues during a test drive. The car comes with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which should transition smoothly between gears.

    The first ever Honda City Hybrid in Malaysia

    The very first Honda City Hybrid was launched in Malaysia sometime in 2017. The engine used here isn’t the one found in the regular City facelift, but a unique Atkinson cycle DOHC i-VTEC unit with 110 PS and 134 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm. Combined with a 30 PS (22 kW)/160 Nm electric motor, the system produces a combined 137 PS and 170 Nm of torque.

    Honda claims that the Sport Hybrid i-DCD (Intelligent Dual-Clutch Drive) system delivers performance equal to that of a conventional 1.8 litre naturally-aspirated engine (the Civic 1.8 makes just 4 PS/4 Nm more), with much lower fuel consumption.

    Design and Aesthetics

    Used Honda City GM6 (2014-2020) Buyer’s Guide

    The 2014 Honda City has a sleek design, with the dashboard pushed forward and the hip-point brought back, which along with a longer wheelbase, helps maximize the interior space​​.

    The 2017 facelift of the Honda City has a more significant remodeling, with redesigned LED headlights on the top-spec V variant, a slimmer chrome bar, and a more elegant front bumper design. The rear bumper design is sportier, and new two-tone alloy wheels are introduced​.

    Fuel Efficiency

    The Honda City GM6 is also noted for its improved fuel consumption – 17.5 km/l according to Honda’s own tests. This makes it an economical choice for a used car, especially for those who frequently drive long distances or commute daily. For the City hybrid model, the claimed official figure is 25.6 km/l.

    Safety Features

    The Honda City GM6 is equipped with ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, and dual-airbags as standard. The E and V grades also feature Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Hill Start Assist. VSC stability control was made standard on all variants when the 2017 facelift model onwards. We recommend buying a car with VSC.

    If you are considering a used unit, please check with Honda Malaysia if the chassis number of the car is involved in a Takata airbag recall, and perform the recall as soon as possible.

    Honda City GM6 Available Colours

    Used Honda City GM6 (2014-2020) Buyer’s Guide

    When it was launched in 2014, the Honda City was available in five colors: Modern Steel Metallic, Alabaster Silver Metallic, Taffeta White, Crystal Black Pearl, and Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic.

    In 2015, Dark Ruby Red Pearl was added to replace the blue. The 2017 facelift added a new hero colour, Lunar Silver Metallic. In 2019, Passion Red Pearl was added to replace Dark Ruby Red Pearl.

    When purchasing a used City, ensure the paintwork is in good condition, and there are no major scratches or dents. Honda City GM6 used car prices will vary based on mileage, condition, and the specific variant, so compare prices from different sellers to ensure you’re getting a fair deal.

    Warranty

    The Honda City originally came with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty. This means cars registered in the second half of 2018 onwards (at time of publishing this story) should still have the original warranty remaining.

    If you’re buying a car from 2018 onwards, check whether the warranty is still valid. This is because if the car is not serviced at authorised Honda service centres, the warranty would be void. Service history is an important factor when buying used cars, a well-maintained car should have regular service records.

    GALLERY: Honda City 1.5L V in Passion Red Pearl

    Honda Malaysia announced last month that the City can be ordered with a Passion Red Pearl paintjob, so here’s a full gallery of the B-segment model in that shade for your viewing pleasure.

    The colour replaces the previous Dark Ruby Red Pearl, and was first offered for the facelifted HR-V. According to the company (at the time), the colour has proven to be quite popular among customers, accounting for 30% of the compact SUV’s sales.

    This particular unit is the range-topping Grade V, which comes with 16-inch wheels, LED headlamps, fog lamps, daytime running lights and taillights, single-zone air-conditioning, leather upholstery, a 6.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, keyless entry with push start, six airbags and Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA).

    Under the bonnet, there’s a 1.5 litre naturally-aspirate four-cylinder petrol engine that serves up 120 PS and 145 Nm of torque, with drive going to the front wheels via a CVT. This is applicable also to the mid-range Grade E and base Grade S, with the exception of the Hybrid that comes with an electric motor and a seven-speed dual-clucth automatic transmission.

    The on-the-road pricing (without insurance) for the Grade V is RM86,983, and other colour options include Lunar Silver Metallic, White Orchid Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic and Crystal Black Pearl.

    GALLERY: 2017 Honda City Hybrid in Malaysia, RM89k

    Announced by Honda Malaysia (HM) last week, here’s the new 2017 Honda City Hybrid in the metal. The sedan sister to the Honda Jazz Hybrid will only reach dealerships by mid August – this is a media preview at HM’s Hari Raya open house.

    Malaysia is the only market outside of Japan to introduce the Jazz Hybrid, and it’s the same with this City Hybrid, which is called the Grace Hybrid in Japan. The JDM sedan was launched earlier this month. As previously explained, this unique situation is due to our country’s Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) incentives as well as the public’s high market acceptance of hybrid cars.

    Honda was a hybrid pioneer when launching the Civic Hybrid here 10 years ago, and the 2011-2013 “golden era” of tax-free CBU hybrids saw the company introduce the Insight, CR-Z, Civic Hybrid and Jazz Hybrid in Malaysia. The latter was also sold as a CKD model in 2012, when it became the first locally assembled hybrid car. By the end of 2013, Honda had 55% share of the local hybrid market, before the tax-free CBU hybrid window closed. With this new hybrid duo, HM is back at it again.

    GALLERY: 2017 Honda City Hybrid in Malaysia, RM89k

    The City Hybrid shares the same hybrid powertrain as the Jazz Hybrid. That means a Sport Hybrid i-DCD system that combines a 1.5 litre engine with idle stop, a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox with an integrated electric motor, a lithium-ion hybrid battery and an electric driven compressor.

    The engine used here isn’t the one found in the regular City facelift, but a unique Atkinson cycle DOHC i-VTEC unit with 110 PS and 134 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm. Combined with a 30 PS (22 kW)/160 Nm electric motor, the system produces a combined 137 PS and 170 Nm of torque, as per the Jazz Hybrid.

    At 1,188 kg, the hybrid is 76 kg heavier than the City V, but the electrified variant has significantly more reserves than the regular 1.5L City’s 120 PS and 145 Nm.

    GALLERY: 2017 Honda City Hybrid in Malaysia, RM89k

    Honda claims that the Sport Hybrid i-DCD (Intelligent Dual-Clutch Drive) system delivers performance equal to that of a conventional 1.8 litre naturally-aspirated engine (the Civic 1.8 makes just 4 PS/4 Nm more), with much lower fuel consumption. The claimed official figures are 4.0 litres per 100 km for the Jazz Hybrid and 3.9 litres per 100 km for the City Hybrid.

    For an in-depth look at the Sport Hybrid i-DCD system, and how it differs from Honda’s previous Integrated Motor Assist hybrid system, click here.

    The City’s sedan body with a 536-litre boot aside (no reduced capacity for the hybrid, but it has a temporary repair kit in place of a spare tyre), technical differences from the Jazz Hybrid include 16-inch wheels with 185/55R16 tyres (175/65R15 on the Jazz) and a larger turning radius of 5.7 metres (versus 5.6 m).

    On the equipment front, the City Hybrid has slightly more kit than the cheaper RM87,500 Jazz Hybrid. The sedan gets a shark fin antenna, chrome door handles, auto folding wing mirrors, rear air con vents, steering paddle shifters and a rear armrest with cupholders. All the above are not offered with the Jazz Hybrid, as are remote trunk release and rear USB ports.

    It’s not the range topping City though. At RM89,200 on-the-road without insurance, the City Hybrid is priced and specced between the RM82,030 mid-spec E and the RM89,240 top-spec V. This is the same positioning HM used for the Jazz facelift range.

    As the one below the range topper, the City Hybrid lacks the City V’s LED headlamps and foglamps, leather seats/steering/gear knob and curtain airbags (leaving four bags, dual front and side). Of course, it does get some unique-to-hybrid items such as a special instrument panel display and a hybrid-specific stubby gear lever.

    You can tell a City Hybrid from a City E by the hybrid’s 16-inch rims (like the V), LED tail lamps (like the V) and Hybrid badges on the boot and sides. There are no fog lamps here, though (the V comes with LED fog lamps).

    Colour options are Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic and White Orchid Pearl (unique to the City Hybrid; RM120 option). The City Hybrid comes with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty with 10,000 km service intervals, as per the regular City. As with HM’s other hybrids, there’s an additional eight-year warranty for the lithium-ion hybrid battery.

    The City and Jazz Hybrids are CKD locally-assembled in Melaka. Production of the City Hybrid has already started and it will be available at selected dealerships for test drives from mid August. The Jazz Hybrid is already available for viewing at selected showrooms. Click on the charts above for the list of showrooms with hybrid test units.

     
     
  • Honda City Hybrid officially launched in Malaysia – RM89,200, slots under top-spec V in price and kit

    Honda City Hybrid officially launched in Malaysia – RM89,200, slots under top-spec V in price and kit

    The Honda City Hybrid has been officially announced by Honda Malaysia (HM), with a price of RM89,200 on-the-road without insurance. As speculated earlier today, that price point is between the RM84,600 mid-spec E and the RM92,000 top-spec V.

    This is the same positioning HM took for the Jazz Hybrid, which is also not top of the range. Also like the Jazz Hybrid, Malaysia is the only market outside of Japan to officially introduce the City Hybrid. The Grace Hybrid, as it is known in Japan, was launched earlier this month.

    As revealed, the Honda City Hybrid shares the same hybrid powertrain as the Jazz Hybrid. That means a Sport Hybrid i-DCD system that combines a 1.5 litre engine with idle stop, a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox with an integrated electric motor, a lithium-ion hybrid battery and an electric driven compressor.

    HM expects to sell 250 units of the City Hybrid per month, a fraction of total City sales. Most would go for a “safer” fuss-free petrol City, and the company knows it. But for those tempted by the Jazz Hybrid’s tech, you now have a big-booted sedan option and manual override for the DCT.

    The City and Jazz Hybrids are CKD locally assembled in Melaka. Production of the City Hybrid has already started and it will be available at selected dealerships for test drives from mid August. The Jazz Hybrid will be available for viewing at selected showrooms from this weekend. Click on the charts above for the list of showrooms with hybrid test units.

  • 2017 Honda City facelift – spec-by-spec comparison

    The big debut last week was undoubtedly the facelifted Honda City – the B-segment sedan was given a shot in the arm with a fresh new look and a glut of extra equipment.

    Cosmetic revisions include a redesigned front end with reshaped headlights (now with LED daytime running lights across the range, V spec gains LED headlights and fog lights), a new grille and reprofiled air intakes, while the rear receives a sportier bumper design and LED tail lights and a ducktail spoiler for the V variant. There are new two-tone alloy wheels too, measuring 15 and 16 inches (no more steel wheels for the S).

    Inside, changes are limited to gunmetal grey trim, white backlighting for the instrument cluster, a new Civic-style engine start button and a new double-DIN 6.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system for the E and V models. These two variants also finally receive a reverse camera, sorely missing on the outgoing model. Meanwhile, the S variant ditches its basic single-DIN radio for an integrated unit with Bluetooth. The mechanicals – 1.5 litre i-VTEC engine, mated to a CVT – remain unchanged.

    But the big change is the level of standard equipment on all models, with the S trim in particular receiving plenty of kit (it essentially replaces the old S+ model) for a modest RM2,200 price increase, and the other variants also getting additional equipment at no extra cost.

  • 2017 Honda City facelift launched in Malaysia – new looks, added kit, priced from RM78,300 to RM92,000

    2017 Honda City facelift launched in Malaysia – new looks, added kit, priced from RM78,300 to RM92,000

    After Thailand and India, the facelifted Honda City has finally landed in Malaysia. The refreshed B-segment sedan goes on sale with a fresh new look, as well as a higher level of standard equipment.

    We’ve been waiting for pricing information – the final piece of the puzzle – for some time now, so let’s get down to it. With the added kit offered on the base model, the range has been streamlined to just three variants, with the S+ model dropped for 2017.

    The entry-level 1.5 S priced at RM78,300, RM2,200 more expensive than the outgoing model, although it now offers a much higher level of standard equipment. Meanwhile, prices for the mid-spec 1.5 E and range-topping 1.5 V are unchanged at RM84,600, and RM92,000 respectively. All prices are on-the-road inclusive of insurance and a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.

    2017 Honda City facelift launched in Malaysia – new looks, added kit, priced from RM78,300 to RM92,000

    As we’ve seen in the media preview, the City has received a fairly significant remodelling, including redesigned headlights – now LED units on the top-spec V variant – with a different shape. The chrome bar, which now extends over the headlights Civic-style, is also slimmer than before, while the grille features a honeycomb mesh and a chrome strip. The front bumper has also been given a more elegant design.

    At the rear, there’s a sportier rear bumper design; the V model gains LED tail lights as seen on the Japanese-market Grace Hybrid, along with a ducktail spoiler with an integrated LED third brake light. Finishing it off are new two-tone alloy wheels, measuring 15 inches on the S (replacing the previous steel wheels) and E, and 16 inches on the V. The new hero colour, Lunar Silver Metallic, is from the Civic.

    Inside, changes are limited to gunmetal interior trim and separate rear smartphone pockets on the E and V models. The advanced multi-info instrument cluster – now standard on all variants – also gains white backlighting instead of blue for improved legibility and a more premium look.

    The integrated seven-inch touchscreen Display Audio infotainment system on the V variant has also given way to a discrete double-DIN 6.8-inch touchscreen head unit, with physical buttons instead of touch controls – this is now also fitted on the E variant as well. Finally, the mid- and top-spec variants receive a multi-angle reverse camera, which was curiously omitted from the previous model.

    There are other changes in terms of kit, too – the base S variant now comes standard with LED daytime running lights, a shark fin antenna, keyless entry, push-button start, automatic power-retracting door mirrors, an advanced multi-info display, an integrated CD/radio head unit with Bluetooth connectivity, a multifunction steering wheel and a 60:40 split-folding rear bench.

    The mid-spec E variant gains the aforementioned touchscreen system, a HDMI port, touch-panel auto air-con, cruise control and paddle shifters, the latter being new to the City in Malaysia. As before, it also receives door mirror-mounted indicators and front and rear armrests. The top-spec V tacks on LED front fog lights, new leather upholstery, a soft-touch dash pad and eight speakers.

    2017 Honda City facelift launched in Malaysia – new looks, added kit, priced from RM78,300 to RM92,000

    Safety-wise, all models now get stability control, hill-start assist and an emergency stop signal in addition to the existing two airbags and ABS with EBD and brake assist. The E variant now receives side airbags, bumping the airbag count up to four; as before, the V variant adds curtain airbags, making it six in total.

    Mechanicals remain unchanged, with a 1.5 litre i-VTEC four-cylinder engine soldiering on, producing 120 PS at 6,600 rpm and 145 Nm at 4,600 rpm. An Earth Dreams continuously variable transmission (CVT) with a torque converter is still the sole transmission option.
